What is psyllium?

  • It is a plant-derived soluble fiber, available as coarse “husks” or finely ground.
  • Pure psyllium seed husk contains no gluten. The psyllium plant is not a wheat.  Look for a premium, pure product with no additives if you are on a celiac diet.

How do I use psyllium?

  • You can use it as an egg substitute in recipes.
  • It can be used to thicken and give body to fillings, puddings, and sauces.
  • For best results, use a maximum of 1 tsp of ground psyllium per 2 cups total recipe volume.  Whisk or blend briefly into a recipe.  Be careful to not over-blend.  Chill recipe for at least 2 hours to set.
